, there's no action on capitol hill. will that change by the end of the year? tonight, two congressmen come "outfront" to talk specifics. plus, arizona's attorney general backs a plan reminiscent of the nra to arm school principles. does more guns in schools begin to add up? and the biggest political fumbles. the best of the worst from our politicians. >>> i'm in for erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, christmas is over. washington get back to work. the countdown is on. the clock is ticking. you've got six days to prevent this country from going over the fiscal cliff and today at least, we didn't see any action. nothing. nothing, nada. now, i'm not trying to be a grinch here. i hope everyone's had a merry, merry christmas. just like the president prescribed. >> drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols. >> but today's the 26th. you've drunk, you eaten and you've sung. now is the time for action. the latest news out of washington tonight, treasury secretary tim geithner told congress that the country will hit the debt ceiling on december 31st, new year's e
can do something now. >> he can. there are executive actions he can take outside of recommendations. here are just three of them. first, recess appointment of an atf director. it's astounding, the head of the atf has not had a steady director in six years. the current director commutes from minnesota. the u.s. attorney from minnesota as well as acting director of the aft. a recess appointment could block that log jam. significant first step. second, the justice department can prosecute criminals who lie on their background checks. in 2009, most recent year we have statistics, 71,000 criminals were found to have lied on their background checks. the fbi reported it to the feds, the feds only prosecuted 77. that's one tenth of one percent. >> criminals are getting guns, bypassing the background check. >> final thing, reinstate the ban on imparts of automatic weapons. this goes back to the first president bush. in 1989, after a school shooting in 1989, signed a ban on importing automatic weapons in the country. it was double down by president clinton. but that hasn't been enforced since
misinformation. >> at this point, what kind of military action might the united states be considering right now? >> when the president of the united states goes out there and makes a strong statement like he did today. >> that's commitment. >> you have to follow up it and do something. >> they're going to watch there carefully. when they see this move, they have to determine rapidly, what are assad's intentions. they're not sure about that right now. get other countries in the region, involved. don't forget, israel lies right over the border. the israelis may not be so patient and wait to see if the chemical weapons are going to be used. >> it's going to make everyone nervous. how deadly is sarin gas? >> 500 times more lethal than cyanide. without an anti-dote and there would be none available to syrian people. it could kill you within minutes. nasty business. >> barbara starr, thanks. appreciate that. troubling developments out of syria come as hillary clinton made repeated the united states position that it will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons. >> we have made our views very clear. t
's a pretty important man. this is alan simpson. ♪ yep. that maybe the most action the fiscal cliff saw today. here's the scene on capitol hill at noon. yep, people leaving. members of congress leaving washington, heading home on wednesday afternoon. one man left standing was the house speaker and he says i'm not going anywhere. >> i'll be here and i'll be available at any moment to sit down with the president to get serious about solving this problem. >> but of course, it takes two to tango, so where does president obama stand? >> we can probably solve this in about a week. it's not that tough. >> it's not that tough. he's absolutely right about that. but we heard early this evening that the president and speaker boehner did speak late today on the phone, so that's good news, but in this case, they need face time. they need to spend real time face to face. even democrats think the president needs to do more in person work on this. >> the president is not somebody who he's prioritizing evenings with his family instead of going down and having a bourbon on the rocks with some of the congressio
of the american action forum and robert reich from the university of california and berkeley and former secretary under bill clinton. douglas, does this sound like code for a deal in the works? >> it certainly is good news that they aren't taking things off the table. i would be premature if i was celebrating a deal. there's a long way to go. it's important that they reach an agreement. the fiscal cliff is a very real danger to the united states economy. it's a recipe for a recession. and i certainly would not like to see the rhetoric that we saw from the treasury secretary tim geithner who said he's prepared to go over the fiscal cliff. that is not a good way to talk about what's going on right now. >> mr. reich, let me ask you the same thing. do you think there's code suggesting they are working towards something? because, doug, as you point out, the language was really harsh during this week. but all of a sudden, here we are friday evening and people are saying these kind of soft things that say maybe compromise. what do you think, robert? >> i think doug is right. it's too early to break out
are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. this evening, michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, hug our children a little tighter. and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another. but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight, and they need all of us right now. and in our days to come, that community needs us to be at our best asamericans and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because while nothing can fill the space of the lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endurings not just in their memories, but also in ours. may god bless the memories of the victims. and in the words of scripture, heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. >> we are indeed a nation in mourning tonight and it is known across the world wha
that will act if there is action. defense secretary leon panetta issued a warning to syria today saying the united states will not stand by and watch the country cross a quote unquote red line. >> whole world is watching very closely. and the president of the united states has made very clear that there will be consequences. there will be consequences. if the assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemical weapons. >> syria denies it is mobilizing chemical weapons in a civil war in which 40,000 people have lost theirs in 21 months. instead, they say they're trying to create fear and set for an attack. hillary clinton met with russia's foreign minister twice today in dublin. these are important meetings because russia is a syrian alley. but is it too late? national security contributor, fran townsend, is a member of the cia. cedrick layton member of the joipt staff. what are those consequences? is the u.s. going to passing the point of no return here? >> well, it is, look, the most recent information suggests they're preparing to be able to launch these warheads containing
of military action might the united states be considering? >> when the president of the united states goes out there and makes as strong a statement as he did today, that's a commitment. you have to follow up. you have to do something. thai going to watch very carefully when they see this move, they have to determine rapidly what are assad's intentions. they're not even thsure about tt right now. get other countries in the region involved. don't forget, israel lies right over the border. the israelis might not be so patient and wait to see if the chemical weapons are used. >> it's got to make everybody in that area nervous. how deadly is it? >> 500 times more lethal than cyanide. without an ant dote, can kill you in minutes. paralyze your respiratory system. >> those troubles developments come as hillary clinton made repeated the united states' position that it will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons. >> we have made our views very clear. this is a red line for the united states. >> so is the united states about to get involved in syria's 20 month old conflict? "outfront" tonight, bob ba
she's always ready to take action, no matter how wily... or weird... or wonderfully the market's behaving... which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> more on the breaking news of north korea apparently successfully launching a long-range missile this evening. in fact, i'm going to talk about that in just a moment. we are juggling two live events. at the klaas clackamas county sheriffs department there is another update as to that shooting that happened earlier at the mall. where two people werer killed and the gunman shot himself. let's listen. >> first of all, i want to make it very clear, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim and their families. how much it means that we are thinking right now. of them. and i want to make it clear the situation is over. right now we are moving to the investigation phase. the mall will be closed tomorrow. as you can imagine, it's a huge facility right there. i want to say is that for all of us the mall is supposed to be a place that we can all take our families, feel comfort canable it is a great plac
they'll spend their day doing tomorrow, so we're not going to hear or see a lot of public action tomorrow. and then we could -- they'll try to tell it to each of their respective parties on sunday, as you said, they'll try to bring to it a vote maybe sunday night or sometime monday morning in the senate. and at least there's agreement on the next steps, john. it's better than nothing. >> thank you, jessica. it will be a working weekend. the minnesota majority in the house of representatives will of course be key to getting any deal across the finish line. "outfront" tonight, republican congress steve la turret of ohio, a member of the appropriations committee. thanks for coming "outfront." with this plan that the president's put forward, the scaled-down plan which would keep taxes low for 98% of americans, raising them for folks over 250, extending unemployment benefits. would you vote for that as an alternative to going over the fiscal cliff? >> i would have voted just to extend the tax cuts for 99.8% or whatever it was of americans that was john boehner's plan "b." a couple of
people lent credence to this hypothesis. i think we have seen clearerly from these sorts of actions, both in april, only weeks after a deal with the obama administration and now this launch that there really isn't a change in behavior. the leaders have changed but the behavior pretty much remains the same. >> barbara starr, if you could weigh in for a moment. did we expect a lot less from this leader, and if so, or if not, why does this matter so much? >> i think they least hoped he wouldn't go down this road of another missile launch in the attempt to launch from that missile something in to space, a satellite, which is what the pentagon is saying did happen tonight. why does it matter so much? asia is the economic power house already now and in the future. you have china militarizing in that region, north korea and so much commerce, money, and trade that everyone depends on now in asia. to have the militarization of the region by two such uncertain countries with uncertain tensions it is a chilling affect on the world economy. first the u.s., the national security concern about what nor

. there are standards now for how an analyst assesses a source and the information. we know from the president's action against bin laden he will ask the hard questions. what don't we know? what confidence do you have in the sources and intelligence before he makes a decision? >> colonel layton, has fran is referring to, when people think about wmd and the u.s. saying syria has this, a lot of people think to iraq when the u.s. made claims that turned out later to not be true. tom forman reported on what syria reportedly has. three deadly kinds of chemical weapons. the first is mustard gas that causes severe burns and blindness, and respiratory failure and also sarin. and then the vx nerve agent attacks the nervous system and is one of the most deadly chemicals in the world. how good is the intelligence on what syria really has? >> it is pretty good, but it's not fool-proof. as fran mentioned there are some elements of intelligence that are guesswork, conjecture, educated guesswork to be sure, but still, they're conjecture. it's not like a court of law where you say this is the evidence, this is irrefut
